Waveforms of 50 teleseismic receiver functions and dispersion curves have been used to invert jointly for the 1D average crust and uppermost mantle seismic structure beneath GEOFON station ISP. The surface wave (Rayleigh and Love)dispersion curves were adopted from an earlier study and greatly help to stabilize the inversions by alleviating the deficiencies of inverting the receiver functions alone. The teleseismic receiver functions had a backazimuth distribution from which three stacks were created. All the stacks resulted in compatible inversions. Nine different influence factors ranging between 0.1 and 0.9 were employed and the influence factors around 0.5 were preferred for producing a reasonable seismic structure to represent the geology under station ISP.
